MANILA—The PBA trade committee finally gave the go-signal to the blockbuster three-team trade that will see Calvin Oftana to TNT, Brandon Rosser to NLEX, and Troy Rosario to Blackwater after the Bossing modified who they will give to the Road Warriors.

Blackwater will now give two future second round picks, one for Season 48 and another for Season 51, to NLEX instead of the injured Paul Desiderio.

The other active players switching jerseys remain the same: Oftana and Raul Soyud to TNT, Rosario and Gab Banal to Blackwater, and Rosser to NLEX.

Rosario and Banal's arrival will give the Bossing a huge boost as they look to begin the PBA Commissioner's Cup on a winning note right in the very first game of the conference against the Bay Area Dragons on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

Oftana, on the other hand, finds himself under the tutelage of Coach Chot Reyes again at the Tropang Giga camp nearly a month after the six-foot-five forward was called up to Gilas Pilipinas for the fourth window of the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

Rosser, the first overall pick of this year's draft, finds himself with a rebuilding Road Warriors lineup in just his second conference in the PBA 5-on-5 play.
